News 372

abouttime writes "What happens when your webmasters and the show scheduling people don't communicate? This page on the mtv site is where the winners of the awards are known before the show even airs tonight... Way to go MTV....." I wonder if it will be pulled by the time the story goes up....oh and in case you can't figure it out, spoiler alert...

This Love (-1)

The Lyrics Guy (539223) | more than 11 years ago | (#3656507)

Pantera - This Love

If ever words were spoken
Painful and untrue
I said I loved but I lied
In my life
All I wanted
Was the keeping
Of someone like you
As it turns out
Deeper within me
Love was twisted and pointed at you

Never ending pain, quickly ending life --

(Chorus)
You keep this love, thing, child, toy
You keep this love, fist, scar, break
You keep this love

I'd been the tempting one
Stole her from herself
This gift in pain
Her pain was life
And sometimes I feel so sorry
I regret this the hurting of you
But you make me so unhappy
I'd take my life and leave love with you

I'd kill myself for you, I'd kill you for myself --

(Chorus)

No more head trips

They filmed it Saturday, most local news agencies/radio stations have ALREADY told the award results.... LOTR took best movie. American Pie 2 best kiss. blah blah :)

It happens all the time. (1)

littlerubberfeet (453565) | more than 11 years ago | (#3656480)

www.nationalgeographic.com is often out of sync with show times, etc. It happens at my school as well. The website is both ahead of the daily announcements, and just plane WRONG a lot of the time. Perhaps a thread: Anyone know how to prevent these mis-communications, so mtv doesn't screw up again?

Uhm... (1, Redundant)

NetJunkie (56134) | more than 11 years ago | (#3656482)

These awards aren't live. I read the winners the other day. At least, I'm pretty sure I did on MSNBC's Scoop section.

Well, fuck it (5, Funny)

Skim123 (3322) | more than 11 years ago | (#3656485)

I'm certain millions of other /. readers are having the same reaction I am: I was planning on watching the award show, but now, because of this gaffe, I'll have to find some other form of entertainment tonight. Shucks, and I was so anticipating the suspense of seeing who would win these coveted awards. Maybe next year!

Lone Gunmen? (3, Interesting)

Can someone explain the Lone Gunman reference?

Re:Lone Gunmen? (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#3656520)

Chrisd accidentally spilled a rather important spoiler on the front page before it had gotten to the west coast yet. Pissed a lot of people off.

Re:Lone Gunmen? (5, Informative)

Violet Null (452694) | more than 11 years ago | (#3656545)

Chrisd put up a slashdot story talking about how the Lone Gunmen (from the X-Files) were killed off in an episode here [slashdot.org], before the episode had aired for a number of slashdot readers. The caption of the story was even "The Lone Gunmen Are Dead", negating any possibility that someone visiting slashdot could avoid the spoiler.

Lots of folks quite upset.

I thought it was well established that 'lone gunmen' was now a verb; thus, the title should read, 'MTV Lone Gunman's Movie Awards'.

slakdrgn (531347) | more than 11 years ago | (#3656517)

Its still up after 5 posts (damn musta opened IE right when this was posted).. Not too supprised LotR won best movie tho ;)

usually (atleast in thought) a lot of webmasters do the data ahead of time, but it auto-posts after everythings played (this is what MTV did for their last Video music awards, or so I read)

I think after they noticed the amount of hits from slashdot, they prolly just gave up and left it there! ;)

That the awards ceremony was held last weekend and everyone knows who the winners are already? Heck, even CNN has the winners.

As with anything else, it's the journey that matters, not the destination.

gwernol (167574) | more than 11 years ago | (#3656527)

Actually, the award results were widely reported several days ago, for example see SFGate.com [sfgate.com] which mirrored the Associated Press feed.

MTV themselves provided the information to the AP, so this is hardly a slip up. They clearly want the results known several days ahead of the air date. My guess is they figure this is good publicity to draw people in to watch the show.
